The debate winner, which will be determined by a CNN poll, is one of 47 props posted at BetOnline.ag — an offshore sportsbook that is not regulated in the U.S. — for the event that will help shape the race for the 47th presidency.

There are props on the number of interruptions, nonfacts and gaffes, which topics and buzzwords will be mentioned first and more.
